Getting a U-M Account and Computing Services—U-M Michigan Medicine Staff

Michigan Medicine staff hired through U-M's online applicant management system may receive an invitation to create their own uniqname via the web. When they complete this process, they automatically receive an MCommunity Directory profile.

Health Information Technology & Services (HITS) creates uniqnames and directory profiles for many staff members and others associated with Michigan Medicine. (HITS uses a program that interacts with ITS's uniqname creation system and MCommunity.) For assistance, contact the HITS Service Desk at (734) 936-8000.

Michigan Medicine staff do not receive the standard computing services unless they request these services from the ITS Service Center. Michigan Medicine staff generally use computing services provided by HITS instead.

Once Michigan Medicine staff have a uniqname, an MCommunity Directory profile, and a U-M affiliation listed in MCommunity, a U-M account, which includes access to U-M Google, is set up automatically for them. Michigan Medicine staff use an email and calender service provided by HITS instead of U-M Google Mail and Calendar.

Note: Within Michigan Medicine, the uniqname and UMICH password are generally referred to as "uniqname and Level-1 password." The uniqname is used with a Michigan Medicine Level-2 password for access to Michigan Medicine services.

Medical School faculty and staff follow the same procedures for getting uniqnames and directory profiles as other faculty and staff on the Ann Arbor campus.
